It's taken some time for the band to embrace Bandcamp, but at last it's been done. Don't know how long the albums have been available from here, but I couldn't resist the Black Label Society, beer soaked sound. Less metal than BLS, more stoner.

Track Name: Hive of Ignorance
Hive of Ignorance

Show me now what it means to you,
To hang around and see this through,
Old man, show me.
Show me.

Throwing down, respect is due
Ignorance of the moods in you
Old man, show me.
Show me.

A slap in the face of the souls of our fathers
You're given the world and you take it for granted
You shit in the bed of this life you've been handed
A hive of ignorance won't be tolerated.

The justice I'm dealing
If you don't have an answer for me
The anger I'm feeling
To set my society free

Show me now what it means to you,
To hang around and see this through,
Old man, show me.
Show me.

A slap in the face of the souls of our fathers
You're given the world and you take it for granted
You shit in the bed of this life you've been handed
A hive of ignorance won't be tolerated.

The justice I'm dealing
If you don't have an answer for me
The anger I'm feeling
To set my society free

The justice I'm dealing
If you don't have an answer for me
The anger I'm feeling
To set my society free
Track Name: 1000 Years
1000 Years

Holding on to a past life,
That never was or could've been.
too late the scales fall,
From the eyes that should've seen,
That you were stuck in a memory
Couldn't remain in the present
Now on this darkest night
No stars the moon is a crescent.

1000 Years, wouldn't be long enough
So we salute the fallen
And make our hearts tough.
1000 years, ain't too long at all
But we keep on going
And in the end we fall.

You can't unring the bell
That's what the man said
It sounds out endlessly
Echoing through your head
And now the ringing in your ears
Resonates through bone and soul
So remember them 'til the end
When you reach your final goal

1000 Years, wouldn't be long enough
So we salute the fallen
And make our hearts tough.
1000 years, ain't too long at all
But we keep on going
And in the end we fall.

And in the end we fall
yeah
And in the end we fall
Yeah

1000 Years, wouldn't be long enough
So we salute the fallen
And make our hearts tough.
1000 years, ain't too long at all
But we keep on going
And in the end we fall.
Track Name: Deeper than You
Deeper Than You

Empty but alive
Finding things I've never known inside
Buried, faith denied
Written off, destroyed and tossed aside

Your ignorance is bleeding through
I'm feeding off your point of view
I see now
I am deeper than you.

You sold me down the road
I got myself back in the game
Another day, another home
You'll never feel the depths I've shown

Angry trust has died
Seething from the lies you failed to hide
Burning saints alive
Many see the light that you have fired


Your ignorance still bleeding through
This is the last I'll speak of you, I'm free
I see now
I am deeper than you

You sold me down the road
I got myself back in the game
Another day, another home
You'll never feel the depths I've shown

Feeling alive, no longer
Chained and bound right by your side

I never wanted any more than I could take
Got sick of living with fear
This shit is over there's no time to fucking waste
And retribution's looming near

You sold me down the road
I got myself back in the game
Another day, another home
You'll never feel the depths I've shown
Track Name: Recovery Room
Recovery Room

I've taken the pills you gave to me
They never seem to work, they always seem to hurt
And I've been under the knife so many times
They cut me into pieces and missed the dotted lines
Damn you butcher, you cut me up
They left my eyes blackened and tossed me to one side
I know there's more than what you say
It's killing me for certain, I'll be pain free for one day

I'm aging prematurely,
I'm climbimng out these gutters but my legs won't carry me
Expectations, let me down
But I will keep on fighting as long as I'm around
And I need you to heal me now
I'm done with this dilution
I'm breaking me out.

And I will bleed no more
The old man stood before you now
Taste the life you knew before
There's no reason why
I should live this way
I'll be pain free for one day

I'm aging prematurely,
I'm climbimng out these gutters but my legs won't carry me
And I need you to heal me now
I'm done with this dilution
I'm breaking me out.

And I will bleed no more
The old man stood before you now
Taste the life you knew before
There's no reason why
I should live this way
I'll be pain free for one day
No reason why
I should live this way I'll be pain free for one day

My eyea are open but they're still broken
The ddor is open but my bones are frozen
Your medications, they test my patience
Things grow like cancer, when you give no answers.

And I will bleed no more
The old man stood before you now
Taste the life you knew before
There's no reason why
I should live this way
I'll be pain free for one
Pain free for one
Pain free for one day.
Track Name: Frank
Frank

I'm wasted on the ground,
I'm never gonna get you out of my mind
I've taken all you've got
Resistance always was the thorn in my side

Hate, Mistake
Follow me
Wait, too late
Now you're me
Become the part that needs me
Vacantly
Take this leash, guiding me
I'm alone, it's where I'll be

You're the flavour that I like
Delusion was the taste of bittersweetness
A burnt out parasite
Solutions always were the cause of weakness

Hate, Mistake
Follow me
Wait, too late
Now you're me
Become the part that needs me
Vacantly
Take this leash, guiding me
I'm alone, it's where I'll be

Choking hope was the hardest thing not to do
Watching crimson skies invade my house of blue.

Mercy is for the weak
But I'm not weak like you
The promises I keep
Were made to break in two.

Hate, Mistake
Follow me
Wait, too late
Now you're me
Become the part that needs me
Vacantly
Take this leash, guiding me
I'm alone, it's where I'll be
Track Name: Perfect Flaw
Perfect Flaw

I needed her to break me
Help me get my feet on the ground
Always talking censorship of liberties
Now this shit is getting me down

One drink, one score
One perfect flaw
I'll have one more
Walk through the door

I will never see right through your lies
You will never see through this disguise

She needed me to hear it
Help me turn my life back around
Always taking my fair share of liberties
Now this shit has worn me right down

One drink, one score
One perfect flaw
I'll have one more
Walk through the door

I will never see right through your lies
You will never see through this disguise
Lash your whip out keep your slave in line
Always taking pieces of my time

I never meant to say "I'm sorry"
I never meant to make you cry
I never meant to say "I'm sorry"
Meant to make you cry
Track Name: Mudjumper
Mudjumper

Jaded, made man waiting for a fall
Fallen, silver rope with safety on
Owners, watch the vultures conquer all
Altered, is this real or am I dead?

And all those people who'd just stand and stare
You're hanging from a window ledge
Money always seemed to break the fall.

Sell out, sold your soul for dollars few
Futures, still look bright with none to lose
Losers, join the line the joke's on you
Users, take your share of nothing

Razor's getting sharper
Grey skies getting darker
Cold ground getting harder
Long fall, getting farther

Jump out!

And all those people who'd just stand and stare
You're hanging from a window ledge
Money never seemed to help at all.

And I could not be, what's wanted from me
And I could not be your mudjumper.
Track Name: Up for Grabs
Up for Grabs

And I wandered long and hard, thinking what's in store for me.
And I walked a long long road on a path I couldn't see
And I left her at the crossroads, directions found then lost
A toll too high for paying, so what was the cost

And It's all up for grabs
Is nobody taking
It's all up for grabs
Will somebody take it
It's all up for grabs
Is nobody taking
It's all up for grabs
I think I will take it again.

A change is always coming, step up and make it yours
A pantomime illusion, a never-ending cause
And it's all there for the taking, at least that's what I thought
Undignified resistance, you wont sell me short

And It's all up for grabs
Is nobody taking
It's all up for grabs
Will somebody take it
It's all up for grabs
Is nobody taking
It's all up for grabs
I think I will take it again.

And I cannot be here with you
I can't live this way
And I cannot be here with you
I can't live this way

And It's all up for grabs
Is nobody taking
It's all up for grabs
Will somebody take it
It's all up for grabs
Is nobody taking
It's all up for grabs
I think I will take it again.
Track Name: Sentinel
Sentinel

Stands before me
None shall pass this by
Damned obstruction
Fear that blurrs my mind
Cease to function
Process is denied
All within me
Construction underdrive

He stands there before me
Blinding my mind to ideas
Sentinel blinding creation
I will break through your walls
Damn you Sentinel

Cease inception
Fearing there's no more
I breath suppresion
And see this choke hold fall
Process rising
Structure is reprised
Undefeated
Sentinel denied

He stands there before me
Blinding my mind to ideas
Sentinel blinding creation
I will break through your walls
Damn you Sentinel

The spirit is strong but my mind it is weakened
The words are not coming my muse is not speaking
The spirit is strong but my mind it is weakened
The words are not coming my muse is not speaking

My dragging mind is blind

He stand there before me
Blinding my mind to ideas
Sentinel blinds inspiration
I will break through your walls
Damn you Sentinel
Track Name: Four Years Down
Four Years Down

And I've taken my time
I've fought long and hard
Become someone else
A shadow of my former self

And I know what I need
To become the me I used to be
I don't know if I've got what it takes
To climb out this hole I've been
Four Years Down

I've been four years down and Im climbing out now

And I've taken my time
I've fought long and hard
Become someone else
A shadow of my former self

And I know what I need
To become the me I used to be
I don't know if I've got what it takes
To climb out this hole I've been
Four Years Down

And I know what I need
To become the me I used to be
I don't know if I've got what it takes
To climb out this hole I've been
Four Years Down
